about

Where You're Supposed to Be

lyrics

The kids are growing every dqy
And the letters go out faithfully
About family meals and soccer games
And empty chairs where you should be
The thing that makes the missing you feel better
Is knowing that we’re in this thing together

You always said “I GET to go…I don’t HAVE to”
And I'd cry in the car…not in front of you
And trust the love we have is gonna get us through
You may not be here with me
But you are where you’re supposed to be

Married in May, left in June
Didn’t see you again until December
That’s how it’s been our whole life through
It felt like more time apart than together
In the distance, where a love can disappear
The kids are grown and gone and we’re still here

You always said “I GET to go…I don’t HAVE to”
And I’d cry in the car…not in front of you
And trust the love we have is gonna get us through
You may not be here with me
But you are where you’re supposed to be
We're both where we’re supposed to be
